In the late 37th century, 100 years after Apocalypse conquered the world, Ozana was a Gibson-Sterling Mark Nine Warbot. In this world, humans and whoever else resistant to Apocalypse's rule could be killed at any moment and the Clan Askani were the only rebellion left to opposed Apocalypse's rule. Ozana was one of Rachel Summers' first recruits.
After attacking Crestcoast powerplant, Hellhole, Ozana was damaged and Blaquesmith was rescued, to could fix the bot. Diamanda Nero ambushed the group near the Scavenger Colony, releasing the humanoid virus Plague against both the Askani and prelates Ch'Vayre and Luminesca. Qua and Luminesca died, but as Rachel destroyed Plague, she died. Shortly after, Rachel was reborn in a Phoenix firebird. The Askani pursued Nero to the Order of the Witnesses headquarters, in the ruins of the Savage Land, but Squy'rr and Hark were killed and Rachel was forced to release the Phoenix Force, after Nero nearly killed her. The total power of the Phoenix Force began to control Nero and she begged Rachel to release it from her. Rachel released the Force into the cosmos and depowered Nero, then left Nero with rations and survival gear. The Askani rescued several children protected by the Order, including the young Sanctity, and then, Rachel left the Askani for a time.
